North Carolina Man Arrested for Trying to Join Al-Qaeda
"A federal criminal indictment says 29-year-old Basit Javed Sheikh of Cary is charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. He was arrested before boarding a flight to Lebanon.
An FBI agent said in a sworn affidavit that Sheikh told an informant he was going to join the group called the Nusrah Front in Syria."
Telling an FBI informant about planning to join Al-Qaeda was probably his first mistake
